French Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact


French Curriculum Intent


At Ince CE Primary School, we believe that the learning of a language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. We would like the children to be able to articulate how diverse the world is and have a respect for other cultures and faiths.  We encourage children’s confidence, we strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language.  It helps them to develop communication skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, with an aim of making substantial progress in one language. In addition, children’s knowledge of how language works will be developed to lay the foundations for further language learning in future. We believe that learning another language gives children a new and broader perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others, which feeds into our focus upon enrichment and global awareness. We aim to promote the children to have aspirations for themselves.


French Curriculum Implementation


At Ince CE Primary School, French is taught by a qualified French teacher, employed by the Teach Up Agency.  It is taught in termly blocks across Key Stage 2, for 30 minutes per week.  Lessons are sequenced and progressive, in which children are given the confidence to develop their communication skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences. Class teachers are encouraged to engage in each lesson and reinforce language and skills throughout the week.  Progression is monitored through target tracker.


Curriculum Impact


Our French curriculum will ensure all pupils develop key language learning skills, as set out by the national curriculum, as well as a love of languages and learning about other cultures. These are as follows:


  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied


French is monitored by the subject leader throughout KS2 using a variety of strategies such as book scrutinises, lesson observations, staff discussions and pupil interviews.
